Picking up where Blood Red Road left off, Rebel Heart is another engrossing read that will be enjoyed by fans of dystopian fiction as well as those that are new to the genre. Fans will be happy to reunite with Saba, an imperfect but capable and strong-willed female character who will do whatever it takes to find her true love, Jack. Unconcerned with placating others, the eighteen-year-old Saba uses her wits and determination to overcome even the most insurmountable of obstacles. Packed with action and danger, the Dustlands series is also about friendship and love--both romantic and familial. Saba's irrepressible desire to find Jack tests the boundaries of her family's loyalty and exposes her own shortcomings. The story involves a fair amount of violence as the Tonton's leader uses genocide in order to preserve the earth's limited resources. It is also implied that another character was raped by the Tonton. In an interesting plot twist, Saba becomes romantically involved (sex is implied) with a surprising adversary. Language is relatively mild (cr-p, h-ll, a-s, d-amn, b-stard). Fans will be eager to get their hands on the final installment in this trilogy.
